About This File

THE STORY: Your wandering around the martian moon landscape when you stumble across an odd structure built into the side of a mountain. A closer look reveals the entrance of a castle with two watch towers.

"What in Hell is this?" you ask yourself. It would appear as if some architect had too much time on his hands. Anyway, it seemed quiet now, maybe too quiet. BETTER CHECK IT OUT!

This is the first four levels of my episode where the theme is set in a castle environment that is meant to be a challenge. There are 3 Demos to watch. ** Load Episode 2 to play **

I don't care about age, and I actually love to play old maps, I find it nostalgic, plus I am Mr. Oldschool :) - MasterOFDeath

Bleh...and don't give me any "it was made in '94 so cut him some slack" because the year a map was released has no effect on how good it is. The map is crap because the map is crap, end of story.

Yes, it's old, it has a few flaws, and it doesn't have any fancy port stuff, but it's still a fine one for me (played it first time years ago).

I like this set. These maps are pretty classic, with their neat texturing, continuous levels, and atmospheric lighting. I seem to recall a version that was a full episode, but with a misplaced secret map (leaving it you would go back to the previous map.) Donce made a good Nightmare! run here: http://www.doomworld .com/vb/showthread.p hp?s=&threadid=33756

I've played this WAD long ago with the name of cphobos5.wad. It's the DOOM2 version... ten maps... it's alright. Although that version has a few flaws, it's certainly better than this.

      A fun heavily modified tougher version of Doom 1's E1M6 dated back in April of 94(yes same month of origwad). Its starts a bit hectic but with so many shotgun guys and plenty of health throughout the map, its actually not that hard to go through. However like any 94 wad, it has typical misaligned textures, a few HOMs, and had to use noclip cheat to grab the last card key due to ceiling being too low to pass under. Despite its age and a few minor stuff, its a fun wad from 1994 and I would recommend to give it a try :)

      Excellent wad for Hexen fans. It stays true to the style/spirit of the original game while introducing new ideas. The level / hub design is interesting, the combat is well-balanced, texturing is well-done and well-aligned, and there are plenty of interesting scripted events. The wings are used in a very smart way - you're able reach many previously unreachable items and paths. The only thing I disliked was the "boss" of the final level. I won't spoil it, but it's quite disappointing.   Unfortunately there is a bug in The Castle Of Fluft - the flame mask switch is not set to "repeatable", so if you try to use it without the prerequisite mask, you won't be able to use it again when you do. If you encounter this bug, type "puke 10" to activate the script the mask normally would.

      This seems like a semi-hidden gem. The author's other WAD Crimson Canyon won a Cacoward, though I prefer this one.   It certainly lives up to its namesake. The textures are all Hell's green marble and blood, supplemented with custom textures including some modified Giger designs and some creepy sprites I recognize from Monolith's Blood. The map designs are seriously contorted. It's probably a divisive aspect of the set. In some levels the angular layouts wrap around themselves in a jagged mesh, creating devilish mazes with slightly obscure progression, and where fireballs can fly at you from different parts of the map. Other parts are darker and more claustrophobic. It's all a totally hostile atmosphere.   There are some common themes gameplay-wise but you'll know them by map 2. A big one is ammo constriction, especially on UV. Certain maps seem near unbeatable without finding key secrets.   This was actually one of the first WADs I completed a few years ago, and on revisiting it it feels very fresh. Like most memorable WADs, it rides on strong concepts and some devilish gameplay while targeting a distinctive theme.

      It almost looks as if what pestilence from hexen 2 would look like in this mod

      It sure is Bill. This minisode is as singleplayer as singleplayer can be, and its for doom2 despite doom1 map names being used. Guessing it was converted at some point and the textfile wasn't updated. Its still accurate about one thing though: it comes with psounds.wad. They're exquisitely obnoxious. Other than that the levels are decent. The layouts for the first three maps almost look like they were drawn without any grid. All of those vertical and horizontal lines were saved for map04, which looks to be completely made of squares and rectangles.
